Philadelphia, PA - Craftsman Row Saloon, at 112 S. 8th Street, announces the debut of its annual Christmas Pop-up that is bigger, brighter, and even more bling for the 2022 season. The Jewelers' Row restaurant and bar is known as Philadelphia's most festive sit-down restaurant.
Philadelphia's Most Festive Restaurant Craftsman Row
Owners and operators brother-sister duo George and Vasiliki Tsiouris are thrilled to welcome all the holiday merry-makers back into the Christmas wonderland that features over 50,000 ornaments, thousands of lights, and over 5,000 feet of garland, and 100 wreaths, 50 nutcrackers, and hundreds of deer and Santa dolls.
Guests will be transported into a true Winter Wonderland right in the middle of Philadelphia. There will also be a special food and dessert menu running from the 25th until January, including alcoholic and non-alcoholic specialty cocktails. Look for giant signature over-the-top holiday milkshakes Pumpkin’ to Talk About (pumpkin ice cream, festive pretzel stick, slice of pumpkin pie, holiday sprinkles) and All I Want for Christmas (vanilla ice cream, egg nog, crushed gingerbread cookie, holiday decorated cookie, lollipop, green and red sour strip).
"We are excited to bring the festive fun back to Jewelers' Row with the Craftsman Row Saloon Christmas Pop-up," said Vasiliki Tsiouris. "We believe in the magical time of Christmas being a time to share experiences with family and friends and doing something for someone, this is an opening of our hearts with Philadelphia, and we have so much fun putting it together."
"We love to see the joy on people’s faces when they experience what we have put together in both decorations and the menu items," said George. "We are very excited to offer this pop-up again to our guests. Christmas is a special place for our family, and it’s great to bring this pop-up together another year with the whole family team."
Craftsman Row Saloon, famously known to provide holiday pop-ups with all the festivities, has done it again. It is ready to host you in kicking off the holidays as Philadelphia’s premier Christmas Restaurant and Bar and main. Get ready for all the feels from the twinkling lights, decorations, and delicious holiday over-the-top burgers, drinks, and shakes.
Even more super-sized and decked out than the past seasons, with over 5,0000 more ornaments added 6,000 more lights and another 1,000 feet of garland. An installation on the bar consisting of 2,000 ornaments, 4-story hanging twinkling lights illuminate the whole building, and an 8-foot tree greets everyone outside. There is a perfect spot to take your holiday picture, whether inside or out.
Craftsman Row Saloon is owned by brother-and-sister restaurateurs George and Vasiliki Tsiouris, co-owners of Midtown Village’s popular Drury Beer Garden that currently features their beloved Greek cuisine with the Opa Pop-up. Craftsman Row, located at 112 South 8th Street, is named for the hard-working artisans that comprise this area known as Jeweler’s Row. Craftsman Row offers guests a comfortable neighborhood setting.
Since taking it over, the Tsiouris family has refreshed the space, a landmark for eating and drinking for 100 years, most recently known as Coco’s, which opened in 1984. Respecting the building’s deep history, the Tsiouris maintained specific aspects of its character, such as the original bar facade, marked by nameplates of Coco’s regulars at each end. The nine booths, reupholstered in button tufted brown leather, and the 16 bar stools have been painted black to match the new distressed black hardwood floors installed. The ceiling is also dark, brightened by light wooden beams that are now exposed. Five televisions positioned at various points of view will broadcast sports games and other events for those looking to root for their favorite local teams. Bright accents, including small, wooden faux taxidermy and modern campfire-style pendant lighting and sconces, are thoughtfully placed throughout the space, lending to the saloon vibe.
